you think about that? >> well i think that is a losing proposition for hamid karzai. it's a losing proposition for is too. look, this legal question of immunity may sound kind of abstract and technical but it's absolutely critical. the united states is not going to put its armed forces or its diplomats or its contractors under afghan law. they are representing sovereign american interests and our law controls. that's a point we have insisted on around the world for years. now this is a bargaining position by hamid karzai. tough negotiation can handle it but it is not something we should give in on. jenna: we didn't get that immunity from the iraqi government and we did withdraw all of our troops out of that country. do you think there's a real possibility that that could be the case in afghanistan? that we do not find common ground here? >> look, i think this is an excuse and think the obama administration which wanted to find a way not to keep our troops in iraq, wants to find a way not to keep our troops in afghanistan. i think this is a guaranty for a taliban takeover, resurgenc

, general, hamid karzai is meeting with the secretary of state and defense. is this a man we can really trust? >> well, i think you need to put president karzai in context. in my book, i think i give a unique view. they don't have political parties in afghanistan. he's been -- he's had his life attacked or attempts on his life three times and operates in a very difficult political environment and has an insurgency going. so i think if you put all of those factors in play, suddenly you get a better measure of the kind of what he has facing him. i'm not saying that president karzai is a perfect leader. but what i'm saying is we should try to understand that context and i think it can allow us to deal better with a leader like him? >> in your book you write this about the afghan president. hamid karzai was a man of strong emotions and loyalties rubbed raw sometimes to cynicism by long years and slowed to trust but chited to relationships. you spent a lot of travel time with him. bottom line, is he doing what he needs to do? >> well, i'm not on the ground to junl the current activities but

hamid karzai appeared at a joint news conference. both leaders announced that u.s. troops will handover total control of security to the afghan forces sometime during the spring which represents a slight acceleration from the time table. but it was at the end of the news conference that perhaps the most important question was asked. after 11 years, almost half a trillion dollars spent and perhaps 20,000 afghan civilians and more than 3,200 u.s. troops dead, can the mission still be justified? >> at the end of this conflict we are going to be able to say that the sacrifices that were made by those men and women in uniform has brought about the goal that we sought. >> joining us now is michael o'hanlon, director of research and senior foreign policy fellow at the brookings institution and dana mill bink, a political columnist with "the washington post." dana, if i might begin with you, we all know of the fatigue with this conflict and the president's desire to bring the troops home. but given what we know of the relative immaturity of afghan forces alongside the continuing presence of the
